Just a quick note that Fable: The Journey has been released!  I created the creative and technical design for the “corruption”.  All that creepy, burning, gloopy, evil?  Yep, that’s me!  I also helped with other general sound design for props, the mine-cart sequence, mixing, etc.  Videos coming soon!
